Fox is in the early stages of development for a live action X-Men TV series.
20th Century Fox controls the film rights to X-Men while the comic is owned by Marvel, so negotiations are under way between the two to get a series off the ground.
"It's in negotiations," Fox entertainment chairmen Gary Newman told TV Insider.
"We're cautiously optimistic, we had a good meeting with them. That will not be on a fast track creatively. This is just the deal, now we have to find the creative."
The series will not be ready before the 2016-2017 TV season.
